    No worries ,buddy :)..
    When you download CF be careful that they don't force "geekbuddy" on you..
    It may be one of those occasions to pay extra close attention to the custom install option.
    From my research Comodo Firewall is one of the best that one could ever hope to get..
    Despite complaints about long-standing bugs, most appear to be really happy with it.
    As you know..VS and WAR are both excellent products,and IMO with the introduction of CF to your config also,you will have an awesome set up.:)

    With CF in place, would you recommend disabling Windows Firewall?

    CFW should disable Windows Firewall when it's installed. If not, go ahead and disable Windows Firewall.
    And only for a small fee. What nice people. :rolleyes:

    CFW with cs config + avast is heck of combination,, if it fill your habits keep it, no problem for sure in security thinking.

    Hello, i recently watched the YT video by cruelsister for config of CFW. Do i really need an AV (i usually don't install any new unknown software and i will be using Firefox inside the container/sandbox for all sites except for YT)? I was thinking of disabling defender.
    I have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware premium (using v2.2, hate v3), will it be enough?

    With best regards

    With CFW, no

    Not a good idea.

    IMO, there is no point using outdated version of a security software.

    If you have Win8/10, disabling Windows Defender is not worth the hassle; so just keep it.
    If you are on Win7, you don't need to add any AVs because Comodo will be the main protection. Of course, only if Comodo is set properly.

    Thank you for clearing my doubt. Comodo is setup as per cruelsister's config.
    It's really fast overall setup.

    Yes CS settings are a good compromise between usability and security especially for comodo beginners.
    it is a good start to learn Comodo.
